This could have worked... but it looks like whomever is creating the TAR file has a different
path to CVS than you and I.

Empty out the directory ("rm -rf *") before running the CVS checkout.  After the initial checkout
you will be able to just run CVS

To whomever is creating the TAR file:
If you checkout Tomcat from CVS using the public path, then what Rob tried will work.  Should
cut the load on the CVS server (which
seems a tad slow for some reason) somewhat.
